EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT / Emotional Freedom Technique
Using the body’s acupuncture meridian system, EFT or tapping as it is more commonly referred to, is a technique where you tap with your fingertips on acupressure meridian points as a way of releasing stress, anxiety and negative beliefs.
The body, like everything in the universe, is composed of energy. All negative emotions that we have are felt through a disruption of our body’s energy. When you restore balance to the body’s energy, you mend the negative emotions and physical symptoms that stem from the energy disruption.
By tapping on selected acupressure points, and focusing on the negative emotion, you are tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power, restoring the body’s energy balance and releasing negative emotions.
From pain relief to healing childhood trauma, to clearing limiting financial beliefs, to weight loss, body image and food cravings, to fears and phobias, tapping is a powerful and effective technique.
Energy Psychology (EP) is the name for a broad range of psychological treatments that utilise the human energy system. Included in this group are treatments such as Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Releasing Technique, Be Set Free Fast, Tapas Acupressure Technique and many other such therapies. Each of these intentionally utilises one of the human energy systems – such as the meridian system, the chakra system or the aura system – during psychological treatment.
Energy psychology theory suggests that psychological problems are a reflection of a disruption in the body’s energy system and that by working with this you can swiftly release traumatic events that are frozen in time in the mind-body system. These events can negatively influence how you see the world, how you regulate emotion and how you relate to other people.
